Jensen Kittmitt won the 2010 World Yo-Yo Contest. This is news that everyone already knows. There is something more amazing that just Jensen’s World Yo-Yo Contest win. A fact that I don’t think enough people either don’t know or just are not talking about. Here it is:
Jensen Kimmitt had a “Perfect Year”
In the 2010 season (Which starts after WYYC in August), Jensen competed in 7 contests all over the world. From giant invitation only contests like 44 Clash competition in Japan, to the smaller California State Yo-Yo Championship in Sacramento, Jensen competed in 7 championship level contests and took every single one of them.
So what does this mean? Basically, the Canadian citizen Jensen Kimmitt is the simply the Undisputed 2010 Yo-Yo Champion. Every contest he attended he conquered. You would think that a champion of this magnitude would be cocky or arrogant, but having met Jensen on multiple occasions, shared talks of industry directions over pizza, and exchanged correspondence helping him promote his Canadian Web Store ModernYoYoing.com, I can say without a doubt that Jensen is one of the most humble, easy going, and approachable yoyo professionals currently in the competition circuit.
I have collected all of Jensen’s freestyles from the 2010 season, most in High Definition, for your viewing pleasure after the jump.
